How fun is beadingâ€¦the colour, the textures and the range of beads we have access to now is just amazing, my own personal collection is just something to behold and I love it.
At Chicky Babeâ€™s Beads we donâ€™t run any special beginners classes, we encourage you to just jump in and have a try at whatever piece of jewellery is being made in the class. It could be a necklace, earrings or a bracelet. I believe that anyone can bead; beginners with no experience, people with crafty backgrounds, young children, more mature adults and the young at heart. To me itâ€™s all about the â€˜wanting tooâ€™ and the â€˜seeing what happens if I do this?â€™.
So if you have been â€˜thinkingâ€™ about joining a beading class with me or your local bead shop, stop thinking about it and just do it. You wonâ€™t regret it; youâ€™ll make new friends with like-minded beaders and try things you never thought you would be able to make.
Our beading classes run every Wednesday from 10 - 11.30am and 7 - 8.30pm. In the picture is some of the jewellery weâ€™ve been making lately.
We also have a â€œNEED TO BE BEADWEAVINGâ€™ Group that does weaving with seed beads on the third Saturday of each month (excluding December).
For those of you not interested in Beadweaving we also have a â€˜NEED TO BEADâ€™ Thursday beading group. We get together, bead (and bitch) every Thursday afternoon between 1pm and 4pm.
Youâ€™re welcome to bring in your WIPâ€™s (Works in Progress) or your UFOâ€™s (Unfinished Objects) or start something from scratch. We create, repair and chat the afternoon away.
